Good trail. Not much elevation gain, but, beautiful views once you reach the summit. Wildflowers are still in bloom. Not much shade. So many other trails to take advantage of. Will be going back to explore some more. You do share the trail with mountain bikers, so be aware.

Ample parking. No restrooms. Low foot traffic. We ended up taking the lower level trail about 2.5 miles into it. Ended up on another path altogether that resulted in a scramble up the side of the ridge to put us back on the loop trail. Resulted in a 9 mile loop. Cell service limited.

I was in a time pinch, needing to get out for a hike, and didn’t have time to drive far. So I found this trail, but didn’t read the reviews closely enough. The view was good, but it is best for mountain biking and motoring, but not so great for hiking. I did see a few hikers and it was fine, but I probably won’t come back until I have a bike.

This trail was a nice hike close to Las Vegas. The elevation gain is very gradual so its not very challenging. The trail is a mountain biking trail so it’s fairly well marked and worn in. Nice views of the strip.

I couldn't find the trailhead...it wasn't marked. it was hard to find the start and it is laced with atv tracks making it hard to find the real trail. most of the trails were marked out with only spray paint. parts of the trail were ok, but mostly unpleasant as it is hardly worn and littered with large locks instead of fine gravel. I would avoid this for now...needs lots of tlc.
